Fashionably Late for Grenache Day

September 12th was International Grenache Day, a celebration of the most-planted grape on the planet. Since you missed the celebration, send these wines to Grenache so it won't be miffed that you forgot. Merlot hasn't called since you forgot its International Day in 2006.

Anyone had the rogue? Where is el dorado ava? Anyway, looks refreshing and tasty with the grenache/tempranillo blend!

Wow, two of my favorite wineries offered on Woot - Broc and Ethan. What to do?!

I have two accounts- this 'anonymous' username for commenting, as well as a 'purchasing' account which is my real name. Apologies for the white box on the left.

Also, in the interest of full disclosure- I'm ITB, selling wine for a living. None of my wines have ever been featured on Woot though, so don't fear the shilling.

+ infinity...anyone want to split or take one or two bottles? I have already bought Broc twice...although I imagine I will buy again this is good juice.

Those of you who live in the Bay Area should definitely check out the Broc Tasting room in Berkley. Right around the corner is the also awesome urban winery Donkey and Goat. Really worth the trip!

I got schooled the last time this one came up but it didn't sink in until the following day (partly because I fell asleep in front of the TV that night!). By then the offer had passed, along with my opportunity to purchase.

I was hoping it would come back during the last wootoff but when it didn't, I thought it might be gone for good.

Thanks to neil, tytiger, et.al. for showing me the light and especially to WD for bringing this one back. I'm not in yet but will be before it expires!

Broc=quality wines, all around-everything Chris does is special, IMHO. Enjoy.

The Ethan is also top shelf. Winemaker Ethan Lindquist's father is Bob Lindquist, founder/owner/winemaker of Qupé- one of the Godfathers of Central Coast rhones.

Thanks, I picked up the Broc along with the Noceto Sangio, was looking at the Ethan as well but wondering if it might be a bit too tart for my palate. I have free shipping til midnight so will continue to mull it over.

The "all you can ship" program may have put pressure on WCC's margins but judging by my own buying behavior, it was a stroke of genius. I almost never buy only one item from woot now. It's not always multiple wine.woot items but more often than not, it is.

Ordered Broc based on comments from all. Thanks!

Yikes- that wine is not supposed to smell or taste like that. Please email support@woot.com to get that resolved.
